Anime All Star is a series of anime shorts and music videos (used in only selected episodes) featuring 30 anime franchises (20 more from the Animetoons series, and 6 more mini short series). The shorts are more reminiscent to the classic cartoons from the 30's to the 70's.

FormulaEdit

Each episode features an intro presenting 3 anime shorts (or 2 anime shorts with a music video or a mini short shown in between in certain episodes) with a rock band style theme playing (similar to the Cartoon Network series "What A Cartoon!). All the shorts only use title cards (the credits for the shorts are featured on the endings).

Columbia Tristar Pictures Logo

Most of the shorts from this series would also have theatrical releases (these would be the only versions to have their own opening and closing titles) playing with both japanese live-action and anime films all distributed by Kadokawa Shoten in Japan.

In America, the shorts are mostly played in selected theaters as their own theatrical series with only anime films domestically for screening only (both english subbed and dubbed) all distributed by Sony Pictures' new distributing studio Columbia Tristar Pictures. The shorts from seasons 47-50 of the series would be co-distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures due to the use of WB Animation characters.

The shorts would also be released at most anime conventions. But the TV versions from the Anime All Star series would be used instead, and only the shorts from seasons 1-47 would be shown.

All the shorts are now owned by Warner Bros. entirely since Sony Pictures sold them.

Spin-OffsEdit

With its success, it would later have spin-offs to the anime like Azumanga Tunes, The Pani Poni Dash Show!, and Aria Mini Shorts.

And would later inspire similar spin-offs made by other studios like Pop'n Tunes, and Hyperdimension Neptunia Tunes.

BroadcastsEdit

The series would be aired on Anime Network and on Netflix.
